Extra waiting time isn't something that anyone wants, but Galaxy S8 owners rather see a stable release for Samsung's 2017 flagship than one that ruins the experience.

Many of our readers have reported unexpected reboots after updating their handsets to Oreo and Samsung has now confirmed that this is why it stopped the Galaxy S8 Android Oreo release. It took the company about three months to roll out the latest Android update.

Firstly, they got the Oreo update on their devices after nearly six months from its release.

We're a couple of weeks before the official launch at the Mobile World Congress but we're expecting more information will be shared. However, according to SamMobile, Samsung is said to be working on the development of a new version. While Samsung investigates the matter, the rollout has been paused and a new version of the update is being worked on.

The Android Oreo update went into beta for the Galaxy S8 back in November. However, at the moment, Samsung hasn't specified timeline of rollout. Some users in countries like Germany, France, Poland, and others were able to successfully download and use the new software, but for everyone else, they're at the mercy of Samsung until it decides to push out a new build. But, a couple of hours ago, we told you that this South Korean tech giant has halted the Oreo update for both these devices in all the markets without revealing the reason behind it.
